Outlook express is only a download application it access the NTL server for you to get your e mails. Thats why you have two copies of them.

Same goes for that as well you still have a copy on your NTL server untill you delete it off that then you'll always have a copy.

Re: Thick Mail Question


Two answers:

POP3 Mail: if you have Outlook Express to leave a copy on the server it wont delete it until you delete it from the server (useful if you access your mail on more than one PC). The setting (off the top of my head) is Tools -> Account Options -> Select your Account -> Properties.

IMAP Mail (unlikely but feasible): Mail is stored on the server, to delete mail you have to delete it on your PC then in OE 'purge deleted messages'. You'll know this is the case if when you delete a message it still appears but is grey and has a line through it.
